Tiger Woods hangs in there at the turn in the PGA Championship

Tiger Woods hangs in there at the turn in the PGA Championship

After birdieing five of his first eight holes and playing the front side in 31 strokes, Woods stalled on the back nine, failing to convert any birdie opportunities and squandering a attractive chance at the par-5 17th, where he three-putted for par.

Brooks Koepka had his rivals on the ropes but could not deliver a knockout punch and had his lead whittled to two strokes over Adam Scott after the third round at the PGA Championship on Saturday.

But that's of zero concern to Scott, who carded a superb five-under-par 65 to climb to five under overall and a share of ninth.

Koepka, who missed the Masters with a left wrist injury, opened birdie-birdie to grab the lead after playing partner Woodland made bogey at the second, but Woodland birdied the third hole to pull level.

It's been a big year for Woods.

Tiger Woods shot a 4-under 66 Saturday to move himself into a tie for sixth at the PGA Championship.

Finau completed his adventurous second round Saturday morning, finishing with 10 birdies in a 4-under-par 66 that was good enough to make the cut. And then the birdie, settling for par that, inside, had to have felt like bogey (or worse).

Tiger trails leader Brooks Koepka by four strokes as he tries for his first win in five years and his first major in over a decade.

But he needed 18 putts on the back nine for a total of 30, and the difference between being closer to the lead. I should've been more aware of the potential outcome of his next shot.

While she doesn't provide direct evidence, she cites three unnamed sources who attest to the existence of the tape. In the book, she paints Trump as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure.

"It started with the first putt, just ran it by", Woods said after his round. "It's soft, it's gettable and you can't just go out there and make a bunch of pars, you're going to have to make some birdies".

Koepka was at 12-under 198 and will play in the final group of a major for the first time.

"I can't believe we opened #TheWoodsJupiter three years ago today". But put him against the strongest fields and the biggest events, and he's a world-beater.

Bellerive is so soft that a charge can come from anywhere. "This is the first real "Tiger effect" I guess you could say".

"I'm very excited for tomorrow". And I made sure on 17 I did.

"It's a pretty intense environment out there". Players from all over the world said the enthusiastic crowds have been making it fun for them to play-despite the heat, storms and weather delay.

Tiger Woods was finished, and so were hundreds of the sunbaked fans who'd camped there all day, waiting as Woods marched around the course and up the leaderboard.

But a couple of loose swings led to consecutive bogeys and suddenly it was game on, a four-under-par 66 not exactly what Koepka had in mind a couple of hours earlier at Bellerive.

"So in eight holes, he had seven birdies", Furyk said.
